I have had some time to play with Penny Black’s Petal Party stamp set (30-113) which I haven’t had a chance to do before.
Here I have used one of the images from the stamp set, but had to give it a little ‘plastic surgery’ first. I wanted the flower to curve around to the left a little and so I trimmed some for the backing from it so I could make the bend.
The main image is stamped on Watercolour paper with Archival Jet Black and coloured with Distress Markers – Seedless Preserves, Forest Moss, Peeled Paint and Ripe Persimmon and blended with a waterbrush.
To add some shadow, I around the lower part of the image with Old Paper and blended out with a waterbrush. I then stamped ‘Thinking Of You’ from the Hero Arts – Made with Love stamp set CL491. To finish the image, I stamped the Darkroom Door French Script with a Distress Ink Pad in Old Paper and then blended around the edges.
The card is Bazzill Pansy and then Creampuff. The green paper is a scrap of Kaisercraft papers and the purple was blended over with Distress Ink Pad – Dusty Concord and then the French Script was stamped over it again.
